Ok, now I'm officially confused! Which Popcorn Time do I need? (Windows 10)

Ok, so someone told me I had the wrong Version of Popcorn Time, because I didn’t have the Feature to set the next Episode of a Series to play automatically.

So I searched for another Version, and found one. I Uninstalled my Version of Popcorn Time and then Installed that Version of Popcorn Time.

When I Loaded the Program, I immediately checked the Options, and to my surprise it was filled with tons of new Features, some of which I have no idea what they really do. I was excited.

But for the past couple of days, since I Downloaded it, I haven’t been able to get anything to Load/Download. Half the time not even the Thumbnails Load, so I can’t Select anything, and on the rare occasion they do actually Load, nothing actually plays, even when I choose a Video that the App says has, “Good Health,” (a fair amount of Seeders.) Nothing will play, nothing will Download.

So today I checked both Pages where both these Versions of Popcorn Time can be Downloaded, and I can’t believe I didn’t see this before, (guess I wasn’t paying attention,) but the original Program I Downloaded has a, “Windows Logo,” on the Download Button. And on the other Page, the main Download Button has a, “Mac Logo.”

So, I’m guessing that the Mac Version simply doesn’t work on my OS, Windows 10. But I’m unsure and I am a little confused why the Mac Version would have so many, “Kick-Butt,” Features that a Windows user, (like me,) simply cannot get or have or use.

Can someone please tell me what is going on and which of these Buttons in the Pics below I should Download Popcorn Time from for my Windows 10 OS?? Thank you.

You’re right to be confused. But if you’re here you are on the right website!

The official version is the one from the website https://popcorntime.app

This is the windows download page: https://popcorntime.app/windows

If you have a recent computer download and install the 64bit version. If your computer is older you can try the 32bit.

Yes you should, your installation will not works properly if you try to install a macOS version or a Linux version. That’s weird that the features are not the same on Windows and macOS. But if they really are, then you should wait a bit, they should be implemented very soon on Windows!

If you have more questions, feel free to ask :wink:

@snowcode ok, now I have something else to be confused about…

If THIS (https://popcorntime.app/windows) is the correct Web Page to Download Popcorn Time… :thinking:

Then what in the world is THIS (https://getpopcorntime.is)?!?! :scream:

A defunct Web Page?? A Copycat Web Page?? I have no idea!! :weary:

It’s a fake app. You should be very careful because this is copy and nobody knows if there is a malware in it or not.

I’m gonna make a new Topic to warn people about this!! :open_mouth:

And maybe, the good people at Popcorn Time might put a warning at the top if this Site and on the Official Web Pages about this. I hope so. :smirk: :sunglasses:

In the process of Uninstalling that base imitation and Downloading the REAL DEAL. Thanks for your help and I’ll let you know how it goes. :hugs:
